Mrs. H. – Tripped and Fell (£4,500)

Home » Case Study » Mrs. H. – Tripped and Fell (£4,500)

We helped Mrs. H, an elderly lady who tripped and fell on a pedestrian footpath and suffered a wrist injury. We advised Mrs. H on a no win no fee basis throughout.

The footpath was the responsibility of the Local Authority.

There was a large hole in the path that caused Mrs. H to trip, fall and injure herself.

Liability was denied by the Local Authority and there were no witnesses to the fall.

We were able to uncover evidence to prove that the hole in the footpath was both significant and longstanding and we established that the Local Authority had a duty to inspect, maintain and repair the footpath.

This evidence was still questioned by the Local Authority and liability remained denied. We had to take court proceedings against the Local Authority.

Finally, five weeks before the trial date, the Local Authority were forced by the weight of our arguments and our evidence to concede the claim and they paid Mrs. H £4,500.00.
